Candle Care Guide

Caring for your candle is important. Here are some tips on how to look after your candle to ensure it looks and works at it's best, and more importantly, remains safe!

  • Keep the candle wick trimmed to roughly 5mm. Long wicks can cause tall flames, sooting, smoking and overheating. Wait until the candle has fully cooled before trimming the wick for it's next use. 

  • Light your candle in a well ventilated area, away from draughts, fans or anything flammable. 

  • Do not burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time, to ensure the glass does not get too hot.

  • It is important to stop burning your candle when there is 10mm of wax left at the bottom. If you burn beyond this, the wick may move off-centre which can cause uneven heat distribution in the glass and cause it to become incredibly hot, or worse, break. 

We recommend burning your candle until the wax pool reaches the sides of the glass. Extinguishing your candle before this time can cause 'tunnelling', which is where wax builds up on the sides of the glass. This can reduce burn time, and can cause the wick to not light or drown.
